Fifth Harmony's official website has been hacked by an anti-ISIS protester.

The band's landing page was hacked last night by an unknown source who left fans shocked after they left a political propaganda message.

The landing page changed to a blank screen with a random email address and a post which said: "Kurdish hacker was here! Long live to Kurdistan! F*ck ISIS, F*ck Turkey!"

Fans were shocked and took to Twitter to share their confusion:



According to emerging reports, thousands of Facebook users have been left vulnerable to hacking following the circulation of a scam email featuring a YouTube video.

In recent weeks, Facebook users have received a message purporting to be from a friend through the site's messaging app.

It has been established that the message asks the recipient whether they feature in particular footage, and includes a YouTube video in the body of the message.

As the video thumbnail features the recipient's profile picture, many social media users have clicked on the link and entered their Facebook password in order to view the video.

The link has directed the user to a variety of different sites including YouTube and Amazon, and allows hackers to record and store the password the user submitted.

Facebook users have been advised against entering their passwords, and have been encouraged to warn friends to change their password if the message appears to have originated with them.




The actress recently starred in the latest reboot of Ghostbusters, but since then, she's been receiving major abuse online.

And to make matters worse, Leslie Jones' website was hacked this morning and private information, including her driver's licence and passport info were leaked for the world to see.

On top of that, the hacker posted private, naked photos of the actress, as well as videos and pictures of gorillas.

Before her website was hacked, Leslie left social media for a few months because the abuse got so bad. 

In the midst of the controversy, the star spoke to one of Twitter's founders, Jack Dorsey, who suspended activist Milo Yiannopoulos' account because his followers were sending very hateful messages to her. 

Today, Milo told The Hollywood Reporter: "I'm distressed to hear that Leslie Jones has been hacked and naked pictures of her have been posted online. I know we had our differences after my review of Ghostbusters but I wish her all the best at what must be a deeply upsetting time."



Jennifer Lawrence seems to have been one of the hacker(s) most targeted victim with a LOT of her personal photos going public back in August.

The Hunger Games actress has remained silent on the issue and the media have since been focused on her blossoming romance with Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.

Jennifer spoke with Vanity Fair (and her cover is STUNNING) about the photos, and how she feels about the whole situation: “I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career.”

She also said she tried to write a statement, but just couldn’t: “Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I didn’t have anything to say sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”

She remains strong about the whole incident, saying: “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”

Jennifer also condemned anyone who may have looked at the photos, and says even people she knows did so: “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, ‘I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.’”

The FBI are currently investigating the disgraceful invasion into Jennifer, and so many others personal photos and videos, however no arrests or prosecutions have taken place yet.
